Your genealogy today (March/April 2017) takes us to Tahiti for South Seas research. If you have ancestors who succumbed to tuberculosis, you will want to check out "Family in the time of plague," an interesting account of a young man's death in 1917. Robbie Gorr uncovers a naming tradition for females carrying their mother's first name, with the addition of "Ann" as middle name. (For males, the equivalent would be "junior.") David Norris looks at the role of the radio (or wireless) in family life, and Sue Lisk looks at gardening, which might turn up in family letters or an agricultural census. Articles treat veteran's stories from both World Wars. Lisa Alzo urges us to have a plan for the disposition of our genealogical treasures to future generations.
